Supreme Court Allows 3rd Version of Travel Ban to Take Full Effect Pending Litigation
December 4, 2017
Stating its assumption that a U.S. Appeals Court will make a decision quickly about the September travel ban issued by President Trump, the Supreme Court issued a brief written order today, stating that the ban may take full effect until that decision is made.
This means that individuals from the listed 8 countries (Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, North Korea and Venezuela) face varying degrees of limitations on their ability to come to the U.S., and there are no exceptions for those with close ties to the U.S. Please see our previous post for a full description of the limitations per country.
